    43 Date-Night Ideas

    Dinner and a Movie, Done Better continued...

    Choose a restaurant that has small tables, or ask to sit side by side, so you can't help but rub knees.

    Try brunch and a matinee: Your neighborhood's fancier restaurants are way more affordable (and just as delicious) in the daytime hours.

    Find a restaurant with a dance floor. Even if you've got less coordination than a Dancing With the Stars early round reject, you can still hold each other close and sway to the beat.

    Laugh like a kid again at the latest G or PG-rated movie. "It makes me laugh to watch him giggling like some 7-year-old," says one woman who regularly goes to children's movies with her husband. "It reminds me of why I fell in love with him: his silly, fun side." Get enough animated fare in your daily life? Skip Shrek the Third and chuckle over the infectious goofy humor of whatever Farrelly brothers or Ben Stiller flick is on offer.

    Create your own "drive-in" experience. If you have a laptop with a DVD drive, take it out with you. Rent or download a movie you never got around to seeing, order something simple at a dimly lit bistro, find a love seat to cuddle up in, and watch. Netflix's most popular DVD rental plan now lets users access movies (up to 18 hours' worth a month) from its "Instant Watching" library of 1,000 films, which can be zapped straight to a PC in seconds. Another option: For around $20 a month you can get software that will let you download a wide assortment of movies (check out cinemanow.com and movielink.com).

    Cheap Dates!

    Give yourselves the VIP treatment, without the price tag:

    Go for an all day hike. Check out trails.com for a listing of nearby treks and get lost in the woods together.

    Sip some fine wine. Find out if your local wine or liquor store hosts tasting nights. It's only expensive if you buy! Other specialty stores hold tastings, too. Check out chocolate stores, cheese shops, or ethnic food markets.
